And the Whole World on this September 11th!
Annie's Thoughts about Remembering September 11th...
Words seem so inadequate at a time like this. So often I know that I ramble or feel
that I "need" to say something to make someone else feel better. BUT let us all
remember at a time like September 11th this year no words will ever be enough so
just try to give someone a hug or a smile. Let them know you love them and care
for them. And maybe just for today try to listen to the Lord's directing and leading
and let Him give you the words IF they are needed. He cares so much for all
of us and wants to comfort us in only the way that He can
by the leading of the Holy Spirit!
Bible Verses of Comfort:
LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble;
and he knoweth them that trust in Him."
"But I would not have you to be
ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are
asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope."
~1 Thessalonians 4:13~
shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old
for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them,
and make them rejoice from their sorrow."
"But now thus saith the LORD
that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee,
O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name;
thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee;
and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest
through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither
shall the flame kindle upon thee."
Quotes of Comfort:
"Grief is a process by which we
are allowed to value the loss, and be healed of
the loss, and be healed of the loss, so that our life can go on. Just as the body
knows how to heal a cut, so the spirit uses the process of grief to heal
the injured parts of our soul. It is as grief is the scab that permits the healing."
Source: Reverend Leigh Early quoted in the book
Strength for Today by Sharon Broyles from the November 11th Devotional
"The melody that the loved one
played upon the piano of your life will never by played quite
that way again, but we must not close the keyboard and allow the
instrument to gather dust. We must seek out other artists of the
spirit, new friends that will gradually will help us to find the
road to life again, who will walk that road with us."
Source: Rabbi Joshua Liebman from "Peace of Mind" and
mentioned in the book "Good Grief" by Granger E. Westberg
Prayer of Comfort:
"Lord, the storms come, and we
cry out in our agony that
life is unfair. We doubt your love and question your
goodness. And the pain often blinds us to the rainbows of
The fear that life will never be
good again keeps us
clinging to the shreds of what we had instead of allowing
you to build a new and deeper life out of our brokenness.
Help us, Father, to remember these
darks days the
things we know to be true of you, the things that seem
so easy to believe when life feels good.
Help us to cling tenaciously, to the
promises that your
love is unfailing, your strength is made known in our
weakness, and you will never leave us or forsake us.
Give us the grace to offer up to you
praises for being our anchor in the storm.
